Where we came from...
Title I is the largest program of federal funding in education, signed into law in 1965 by President Lyndon Johnson. President Johnson recognized the extremely difficult problem that children throughout the country were having with their reading, and mathematics. In an effort to help them catch up, extra attention, materials and teachers were provided by the Elementary Secondary Education act, Title I (ESEA).
In 1981, President Ronald Reagan formed the Education Consolidation Improvement Act, Chapter I Basic (ECIA).
In 1988, the ECIA, Chapter I Basic program became the Hawkins-Stafford Elementary and Secondary School Improvement Act of 1988.
In 1994, Congress passed a series of educational legislation, submitted by President Bill Clinton, strengthening the parent-school community partnerships.
On July 1, 1995, after reauthorization, the program is now Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
On December 2001, President Bush signed into law the “No Child Left Behind Act”.
The Title I law requires the meaningful involvement of parents in school level planning, development and design of initiatives to improve student achievement supported by Title I funds.
